Zacuto | Chicago, Illinois, USA | SPONSOR

Zacuto, a leading filmmaking accessory manufacturer, has been designing production grade filmmaking accessories for 20+ years. They are known for their high quality optical viewfinders, electronic viewfinders and shoulder rigs. They recently launched their newest invention, the Smart Z-Finder, a viewfinder for phones.

The device allows users to harness a phone’s incredible capabilities by adding the single most important part of any camera, the viewfinder, a missing part that users have been asking Zacuto to create. Designed to magnify and block out light, it enables you to see an in-depth, glare-free image of your screen to achieve critical focus and framing and see exactly what your audience will see. The Smart Z-Finder is just the beginning of the products they have in the pipeline, like on-camera boom poles, micro mixers and more.

They are excited to provide mobile content creators and filmmakers tools to inspire them to innovate and create.

“We are excited about our partnership with the International Mobil Film Festival. In 2012 with our documentary, “The Revenge of the Great Camera Shootout”, we said “It’s not the gear that determines greatness anymore, it’s you!” Get out there with the tools you have and tell a great story, learn from each project and make each project better.”

International Mobile Film Festival is honored to welcome Zacuto as a partner supporting mobile filmmakers through our film festival in San Diego.
